There's something nostalgic about a crisp white shirt with sleeves rolled up that reminds me of the classic style icons - Katherine Hepburn, Slim Keith, Bridget Bardot, Jane Birken, Jackie O and those that led the good life basking in the sun somewhere exotic. Adorned with just the right piece of jewelry that is the quintessential look of summer. I don't do a lot of basking in the sun, but I have a large collection of white shirts for every occasion.
There are pieces in my jewelry collection that I envisioned to be the perfect addition to this classic look. The Roman Chain, Celestial Ball and the Helena Necklace are the perfect bronze glow for the just inside the open collar. Then there's the 60's tunic look where the layering of many pieces is just the right boho to conjure up Talitha Getty or the ethnic look of Yves St. Laurent's muse Lulu de la Falaise. At the end of the day it's all about your personal style and how you wear it. Some of our fashion classics below.
